Weymouth SEA LIFE to bring marine life to Wareham at free event
27 April @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park is teaming up with Wareham & District Development Trust to bring marine life to the town for the first time this spring.
SEA LIFE will debut its mobile interactive rock pool at a free event on Friday, April 27 at the Tree of Life & Laughter Community Garden based at the rear of Wareham Library. Members of the community are invited to the garden from 11am-3pm to learn all about the micro-habitat full of interesting creatures from Weymouth SEA LIFE’s experts. Guests will also be given the opportunity to interact with sea anemone, starfish and crabs that live in the pool.
Tamsin Mutton-Mcknight, general manager of Weymouth SEA LIFE, said: “We are pleased to be given the opportunity to join forces with the Wareham & District Development Trust to bring our mobile interactive rock pool to Wareham for the first time. We are looking forward to educating attendees about the creatures that live in rock pools and the habitat which they live in.”
John Scott, development manager of Wareham & District Development Trust, added: “Since the community garden launched last year, we are thrilled that the space is being used in this way to bring the community and schools together to learn about the marine life which lives at Weymouth SEA LIFE.
“We are excited to be working with Weymouth SEA LIFE on this complimentary community event. It is our way of giving back to the fundraisers who helped us transform the once neglected space into this revitalised community garden, exhibition and display space.”
Weymouth SEA LIFE is the home to more than 1,000 creatures with 13 different zones containing penguins, sharks, turtles and stingrays. Guests are invited to learn all about these creatures which live in and around the sea and how we can work together to protect them from harm. Caribbean Cove is Dorset’s largest outdoor adventure playground and can offer hours of entertainment along with the park’s Splash Zone. Daily talks and feeding demonstrations are also held at the park to further educate guests about the different species which are present at Weymouth.
